Lelystad virus and the porcine epidemic abortion and respiratory syndrome.
The European and North American PRRSV prototypes are Lelystad virus (4) and VR-2332 (3), respectively.
For example, the GP5 ectodomains of LDV, PRRSV VR-2332, and PRRSV Lelystad virus are collinear and contain a segment with approximately 70% amino acid identity (Figure 1).
For example, the N-proteins of Lelystad virus and VR-2332 exhibit only 60% amino acid identity (Figure 3).
